    Hey guys!
    What do you think is Ovechkin's potential, do you think he could be the best russian or european player ever? Do you think he could become the player with the more goals in history?
    Leave your opinion:)

    with a panned out Backstrom playing on his line, i think 70 goals for a year COULD be done, not sure if he'l get there, but it's pssibly, especially with 52 goal rookie season playing with the likes of Danius Zubrus

    Teemu Selanne with less passing ability and more physical presence.

    I think he will be the best Russian or Euro of all-time. I think he will be in the top ten players of all-time, behind Gretz, Mario, Orr, Howe, but neck and neck with Crosby.

    I see many 70 goals seasons ahead.

    Last season two people scored more points, so he's got two more people worth of potential to tap right now.

    He will be a great player whose career will be destroyed by injuries. He looks great now how he plays all out but Forsberg was healthy too in his first few seasons. In 5 years Ovy will start to break down (unless he is REALLY healthy).
     
  15. I dont see Ovechkin improving his offencive game. He plays like hes been in the league for 5 years.

    Ovechkin = Selanne

    Here's my take on Ovechkin:

    He has the explosiveness of a younger Selanne. The power and strength of a Jagr. Tenacity of a Forsberg.

    Points? A 5 or 6 time 100 point season I can see a possibility.
